    Most books are opening up with Cincy as a 3.5 point favorite.

    If Vegas went on analyst predictions, everybody would be broke.

    Yep. All Vegas cares about is getting even money on both sides of the line. That's it.

    I hear this a lot on this board, but it's a bit too simplistic. You will often hear about how Vegas is rooting for one team or another (typically underdogs), because the public is heavily on one team.

    When the public bets heavily on one team, the line will change to reflect such betting.

    I was hoping this thread was a joke.

    Don't be stupid.

    From last year's NCAA Championship:
    “I can’t speak for everyone else, but I think the whole town will do better if Kansas wins the game outright tomorrow,” Vaccaro said.

    From last Super Bowl:
    "Vegas bookmakers are pulling for the New England Patriots to take home the winning title."

    There are often times where the money falls far from even.
